Tea With Patsy

One of my favorite people in all the world is Patsy Clairmont.  She is such an inspiration to others ~ her messages are always delivered with humor and a deep love for the Lord. 
 
I keep her book close by,  it's so nice to pick up and glance through, it just lifts your spirits.

Devotions set apart
My heart to His attune
 
Time in His presence
Sips of English tea
Moments to remember
His grand love for me
 
 
Dear Potter,
We realize we have been jarred by life, causing brokenness.  Some of us feel like shards of china instead of the exquisite and intriguing vessels that we want to be. We want to be pots that, when poured, tipped, dropped, or spilled, issue forth streams of life. Please, You who rework clay to repair damage, mend us. 
In Jesus restorative name,
Amen
 
 
Thank you Patsy Clairmont for lifting our spirits this day!
 
Memo:
The pictures I used today were randomly found on the internet.

  1. I say yes, it's proper to drink coffee from a tea cup....or maybe I just want it to be proper since that is what I enjoy :)

    Lovely post, sweet Mary. I am always refreshed by your beautiful words and thoughts. Thanks for sharing at Roses of Inspiration. Hugs!

  6. Sweet post with inspiring words. Lovely photos, too. I love tea in tea cups and coffee in mugs....mostly because I am a tea sipper and a coffee drinker.

  10. Hello Mary
    It's lovely to meet you at Stephanie's party.
    I'm enjoying sitting down with you today sharing a cup of tea knowing how lucky we are to be part of God's family.
    I've used those charming illustrations in the past - two rabbits sharing tea in the garden - what could be sweeter!
    Living so far away on the other side of the world I wasn't aware of Patsy but I will search for her books on The Book Depository.
    I’m now following you and looking forward to your next post.
    Do pop over and say hello!
    Hugs
    Shane
